Combining a museum and an aquarium, the Folkestone Marine Park features an artificial reef, purposely formed by sinking a ship called the Stavronikita. Divers can expect to see some incredible marine life at the site. Snorkelling equipment is available for hire, though only experienced divers should venture to the Stavronikita because of its depth. Visitors can also enjoy the aquarium, which displays some rare and fantastic marine life.

Address: Church Point, Holetown, St James
